Pittsburgh Steelers Sign Former Commanders Linebacker

A nice addition to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed linebacker Cole Holcomb to a three-year contract, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Holcomb previously played for the Washington Commanders, where he started in 48 games over four seasons. In 2021, he recorded a career-high 145 tackles and has 4.5 sacks in his NFL career.

Holcomb did sustain a foot injury in late October of 2022 and did not play in any of the Commanders' final 10 games. However, he underwent surgery in December and is expected to be ready for OTAs.

In the 2022 season, he finished with 69 tackles and one pass defended across seven games. 

With this signing, the Steelers are making moves to improve their defense for the upcoming 2023 season and beyond.

Holcomb brings experience and production to their linebacker corps, and it will be exciting to see how he fits into their defensive scheme.
